idea that they would have to tax the bank accounts of their own citizens and those of foreigners in their country to help pay back this loan to bail them out. they don't like the idea of that at all. who's pushing it? we don't know where it came from, but we know a very strong eurozone member, germany, has been talking a lot about accountability. the idea that if you have a bailout like this for cyprus there has to be some really strong participation from cyprus in paying it back. and maybe there's no other way for them to pay back. that is what has spurred so much talk about russia of all things. why russia? why would russia be so interested in all this? there's a historic connection between russia and cyprus, but importantly many, many russians have many, many millions of dollars in those cyprus banks as an offshore tax haven. enough so they may control half of the accounts there in cyprus. the russian government does not want that money lost to its citizens for investment in russia, for building in russia. so the idea has been floated that maybe russia will step in and find a way

, states in this country collected nearly $244 billion in cigarette taxes and settlement money from the case against big tobacco. yes, that is nearly one quarter of a trillion dollars. this year alone, the states will get nearly $26 billion. so that money is supposed to go to ending smoking, funding tobacco prevention programs, but it doesn't. of the $26 billion this year, about 1.8% is actually going to go towards prevention. the states use the rest for, well, a whole lot of other stuff. they obviously need the cash desperately. new york city will receive $625 million this year and has set aside $7.9 million for prevention programs in its 2013 budget, even less than the national average. the truth is states and cities in america say they want smoking to end, but they rely on people smoking to make ends meet. that's an inconvenient truth. mayor bloomberg is really serious about stopping smoking, he should ban that and fight that battle, not the silly soda stuff.
